Pros
  • Great work life balance, I only work more than 40 hours a week when I'm so excited about what I'm doing that I can't help myself (in 23 reviews)

    I have been working at New York Times full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible work for anyone who believes in the mission of NYT and the value of credible, thoughtful journalism. Effective cross-functional collaboration.

    Cons

    Somewhat bureaucratic, somewhat late to the party on many digital media trends (this has since changed to my understanding)

    I worked at New York Times (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant people committed to doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Massively changing media landscape makes it harder and harder to do the journalism (thorough, thoughtful, project) for which Times is revered.

    Advice to Management

    Particularly for the masthead editors, filter around the desks more and talk shop. It means a lot. Every editor says they will (Bill, Jill, Dean) and they never do.

    Pros

    Forward thinking and ahead of most all other media outlets. Great training opportunities to help you progress and grow within the company.

    Cons

    The only thing that comes to mind is that our group was sold.

    Advice to Management

    NY Times is iconic. Foster the internal relationships you have with your employees. They are your most valuable asset.
